Apart from the new project, Goro did mention why Ghibli was not commencing a new project right away. He revealed that the last schedule of The Boy and The Heron was incredibly long and exhausting for the staff and the animators. "After spending seven years on an animated movie, the director, and the staff as a whole, are incredibly exhausted," Goro said on the matter. "I think the studio needs some time to recover," he continued. 


It was predicted that Hayao Miyazaki would not be attending the festival. Given his age and the timing of the international film festival, Hayao was certain not to be traveling.
